New Arrivals

By Nigel_95
We have two new kittens (brother and sister). The first two shots show Milly having taken up residence on my stepladder whilst I had lunch yesterday. The third is not a good shot but it shows Milly and Billy just about occupying the small platform. It also shows how the plaster came off with the wallpaper (very easily), when I stripped the wallpaper.

Aww, these are excellent. Wonderful detail and superb clarity in the eyes especially. They will keep you entertained.
I'm nursing my sick one currently .

Beautiful cats. I'm not usually a fan of cats' eyes looking directly at the camera - they have to be just right. And here they're just right! I like the way the colour of the eyes matches the background. Nice.

Grat shot, unusual not to see something more luxurious for a nap

I agree Rod, she has a comfy bed she can sleep in. The stepladder was something new (and quite high), and therefore had to be investigated.

Cats are not necessarily the easiest to capture but you nailed this one. Super sharp and nice light despite dark fur.

Don't you just love home improvements? I just finished putting in a concrete patio, installing a new sliding door in back, plastering the stucco around it, and worst of all.....refinishing the hardwood floors. That is probably the nastiest thing you can do I think.

The thing I don't like is they never seem to end, there is always more to do.

Ahh cute shots Nigel, I particularly like the expression captured in V2. They will certainly keep you busy, I got two kittens 8yrs ago but they have decided not to grow up yet Wink

Awwww....I love kittens, wish my 3 were still kits....I think I am in very great danger of becoming a bag lady with 100 cats!

Great picture!
I'm voting on your photo here from India as I have a lot of problems with the Qatar internet! Will do a bit of catching up on your other profile photos once the problem is solved!
Have a great day!

Nigel - this is a great shot. You have really caught some beautiful detail here - not easy on black cats (I have tried many times with my own cat and failed miserably!). John

I am amazed by the detail and colour in all three images. You are a brave man in having kittens around while decorating. Good work Nigel.
